Franck Ribery has completed a move to Serie A side Fiorentina following his departure from Bayern Munich.
Ribery, 36, became a free agent when his Bayern contact expired at the end of June.
The French winger spent 12 years in Bavaria, winning nine Bundesliga titles, and was given a warm welcome by Fiorentina fans when he flew into Florence on Wednesday.
The length of the deal has not been confirmed, but reports in Italy indicate it will run for two years.
“I am here with my family. We’re doing something together,” Ribery told reporters when he arrived in Florence.
“I have already spoken to Fiorentina and Luca Toni, who told me this was a great club and a beautiful city.”
